ZArchive – Unearth

Our Heritage Lottery Fund-supported project, UNEARTH,ran over 2 years, 2017 to 2019, and enabled researchers in 8 Devon villages to discover the vibrancy of their local history, resulting in 8 multi-media performances inspired by the research.

Groups of community members  completed extensive local research over many months and then worked  with 4 artists; a musician, an visual artist, a playwright and an actor to bring their local stories to life in a unique one-off performance in their village hall. Exploratory and performance work took part with collaborators in Cheriton Fitzpaine, Whimple, Starcross, Rattery, Crediton, Brentor, Chagford and Buckfastleigh.
